Back from Vacation!

This week has been wonderful but I am a little sad.... it is the end of my vacation! Tomorrow morning we pack up and head home! We have had so much fun in Cabo but it will be nice to get back and get into a normal routine again!

It's Friday so we have a new challenge for you at Frosted Designs..... Die Cuts! Let's be honest.... the possibilities are endless on this one! You can use die cuts you made using a die cut machine or you can use the die cuts from your favorite manufacturer!! Here is a layout I did with my brother, Greg, and Lauren when she was just a little tyke! Boy do all the kids love their Uncle Greg! What a special man! We are so blessed to call him family!

I love how this layout captured the fun of summer! I know I should probably be working on layouts that have more of a fall theme, but I wanted something bright and cheery!

I am so glad you stopped by to visit today! I hope you get a chance to join us in this week's Die Cut challenge! You can get to Frosted Designs by clicking HERE!! Have a great weekend!

Toddler Trouble!

Hello everyone! I hope you had a fabulous week! It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Where has this year gone?!  :)  Frosted Designs has posted the new Fabulous Friday challenge.... Embossing! The embossing can be dry embossing or heat embossing or both! I love the look of both techniques but sometimes I forget to use it! Here is a layout I created of Lauren when she was a toddler....

She thought it was great fun to go into the bathroom and unravel all the toilet paper! But with that cute little face, I couldn't possibly get mad!  :) 

Most of the supplies came from an American Crafts kit I had. I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder, some buttons and fibers, threw in a little rik rak and some flowers and finished it off with the darling little bird I made myself! I tried to make it look like the birds on the paper! Not an exact match but pretty close!

We would love to see what you can do with embossing! Be sure to link up your project for a chance to win a prize from Mold Muse! If you haven't heard of them, you need to head over to Frosted Designs to check them out.... cool products!!
